Chocolate Banana Cookies

Chocolate Banana Cookies
I created this recipe because I was looking for something that was easy to serve and I wanted it to taste like cake. Cookies seemed like an obvious choice. These chocolate banana cookies are thick, moist and full of flavor! They are especially delicious with the extra thick chocolate drizzled on top!

Chocolate Banana Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 bananas, mashed
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips 

In a small bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla.  Add the mashed bananas and ricotta cheese.  

Stir in the flour mixture.

Add 1 cup chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet.

Bake 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  The cookies will be like cake.

Melt 1/4 cup (or more!) chocolate chips.  Drizzle the melted chocolate over the tops of the baked cookies.

For extra moist cookies store them in the refrigerator.
